Now it appears that Assateague State Park is in the cross hairs of the very same environmentalist groups that were succesful in restricting off road access to certain beaches down in Hatteras. I came across this article in the Delaware Times about off road access to the certain beaches in Maryland
The National Parks Conservation Association, a park advocacy group, said more needs to be done to ensure that trucks aren't hurting plants and migratory birds that nest on Assateague.
Giampaolo laments a similar set of cirmunstances in Maui. Click here for a story about beach restrictions at La Perouse Bay, Maui.
Its ironic too as just last week I was looking into ditching the van for a 4X4. Dont get me wrong, I'm all for protecting our national parks, and doing everything within reason to effect improvements.
But this is starting to rub me the wrong way.
